The Ebony Lounge
« on: Mar 27 06 09:57 »
OK....I know this is probably something nobody else has any interest in....but tonight I sit in a room that I have been working on since just after Christmas.  (Hubby thought it was cute to bring home this giant flat TV right out of the Jetsons....into a room full of antiques....I said  uh uh)

  So we took our dining room (biggest room in the house, and used the least) and turned it into a lounge.  I painted the walls black (yes...black) and all the window trim ivory.  I repurposed  a set of little round wrought iron tables  that had folksie fruit painted on each one, and painted a zebra pattern on them.  We built a bar, and matched the stain to our computer furniture, and did some major juggling.....and tonight is our 'opening' of the Ebony lounge.

  So.....now that I've finished blowing my horn, I thought this would make a great thread for evening 'chat'.  Kinda like the lunch thread, but for the evening posters.  So if there is a thread that we don't feel like 'hi-jacking', just to say hey to someone....we can do it here.

  Hey, FC....how's it going.  (see ???  like that)  [img style="CURSOR: pointer" onclick=url(this.src); src="http://www.cheesebuerger.de/images/more/bigs/a056.GIF" border=0]

I'm so glad this is such a positive experience for you.  Yaaaay !!!  The Northwest IS beautiful for sure!!!!

  So, what will you write your essay about....something of your own choice, or are there stricter guidelines ?

Vague is good.  When it comes to writing essays, the wider the door is open, the wider your mind is open.  I find if something gets too specific, it cuts off my creative flow  (lol...that sounds...um..weird)...but do you know what I mean ?  It creates pressure to have to zone in on one topic.  This way, it's purely creative, and totally subjective.

  Well, good luck sportsdude....I KNOW you'll do well.

  On that note, I must sleep.  Enjoy the rest of your time there.

A few ice wines from Naramata, but other than that I like German wine.  (oh yeah, and a ton of Piesporter that I made at one of the local wineries...lol)

  Funny thing happened....I tried posting in DV tonight, and for a while, I thought I was banned again.  It DID finally work, but it got me wondering what was up !!!

I haven't dropped in there for a while. Place was a riot at one time. But it seems buggy.
